Some redneck kids trying to get badges to get a free ride to college, but then bullcrap turn of events more or less allow the bad guys take over, and they are seen as the leaders of a rebellion against them.
The main characters would be one overly humble to the point if ridiculousness redneck boy with time powers, a rich but still living in hikville smart guy, and a tomboy gal runnin' away from home. Throw Pokemon in there right there, and there ya go; one redneck-fried Pokemon Manga.
But for real, I still say one of the artists over there should do a nuzlocke/Pokemon hard mode manga. If I see amazin' comics from artists over here using the challenge for their comics, I'm sure japanese artists can too.
